Onakatomi no Yoshinobu (921–991, , also Onakatomi no Yoshinobu Ason ) was a middle Heian period waka poet and Japanese nobleman. His granddaughter was the famous later Heian poet Ise no Taiu. He is designated as a member of the Thirty-six Poetry Immortals, and one of his poems is included in the famous Ogura Hyakunin Isshu, but one theory holds that his entry in this anthology was not actually written by him.
